how to launch a successful ai startup


image: istockphoto.com/digtialstorm in september 2010, a three-person ai startup called deepmind technologies launched in london, with the goal of "solving intelligence." four years later, google acquired the company for $500 million. and by 2016, it had achieved a major victory in ai: mastering the complex game of go. this story represents the fantasy of many ai researchers, eager to launch their own ventures in the ai startup space. but the field has become saturated, and the terms "ai," "deep learning," and "machine learning" are often overhyped and misunderstood. companies and vcs often hear these buzzwords but don't know what, exactly, it is that they are investing in.so how can you start a successful company, grounded in ai, that can rise above the noise?prateek joshi, an immigrant e

how tax changes may impact us startups


joanna glasnercontributorjoanna glasner is a reporter for crunchbase. more posts by this contributor: although u.s. businesses may be poised for massive tax reductions, most tech startups have little immediate reason to celebrate. after all, the vast majority are unprofitable. so cutting the corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, as congress has opted to do, has zero effect on their near-term finances.that said, what is true of most new tech ventures is not true of the broader startup ecosystem. investors, employees, prospective acquirers and others should see a more immediate impact from tax code changes, which could, in turn, affect their decision-making in startup-related matters.what changes might we expect on the horizon? it’s too soon to predict, as congress has yet

you’re working late at the 7-eleven when a masked man comes through the door with a gun. you raise your hands, follow his instructions, empty the cash register and throw some burners in the bag. as he runs out the door, you note his height, collect yourself and call 9-1-1. unless you don’t need to because the mask immediately tipped off your store’s ai, and the police are already on their way with a description. that’s what startup battlefield company deep science ai hopes to enable.there are security cameras everywhere, founders sean huver and sam tkach thought, and deep learning models are getting really good at spotting individual objects in footage — for example, masks and guns. so why not put the two together?“people find it surprising how prevalent this problem is in high-crime areas
